This song accompaniment, inspired by the upcoming visit of the Salvation Army Symphonic Wind Ensemble to Brighouse, is in essence an upbeat arrangement of the song “All Things Bright and Beautiful” with hints of the English traditional Floral Dance.
Early trials indicate that this work will be very popular with church, garden party and bandstand audiences with minimal rehearsal.
The music is cross-cued to make it viable with six or seven players. The percussion parts adds much character to the music but is not essential. Similarly, the addition of a tambourine, etc., is encouraged.
